So I haven't blogged about a coupon deal for a while. I am still getting PLENTY of items for super cheap with coupons/deals. But I have been so busy with the kitchen to want to write about any of them. Here is my purchase from last night at Albertsons...
9- boxes of Pringles Stix
2- bags chocolate chex mix (yummy chocolate mix but the preztles kinda ruin it)
6- 4 packs of sparkling juicy juice (surprisingly still 70% juice. The apple flavor kinda tastes like red bull)
1- dozen eggs (the only thing I really needed from the store)
5- kids colgate toothpaste (I donate it to the homeless shelter)
3- 3 packs of ivory soap
4- container pringles
All this for $6.23. Plus I got a $2 survey to use on my next shopping trip.
These are things I normally wouldn't get or need but since they were pretty much free they are great things to have around or donate.

So it has now been 5 weeks. We are VERY close to being done. I am not going to show pictures until the Kitchen is complete. But, it is coming along. Lets just say our fridge is officially in the cave. The baseboards are in and painted. Thanks to craigslist we upgraded our apartment sized appliances with a normal sized stove and dishwasher. Oh I LOVE craigslist! I buy so many things off there now and sell plenty too. There are still things to do in the kitchen but the thing to do now is go to bed.
Peace and love everyone

Exactly a week ago Simon and Malu went to play at Kristi's house with Diesel. When Rillz and I went to pick them up Malu had raised hair bumps all over her back and a couple on her head. My instinct was immediatly to take her to the 24 hour vet on our way home. It was midnight and we new it would be spendier than if it were with her normal vet. We decided to forgo the vet and go home. Malu still seemed her normal self and wasn't itching or anything. We put both of them to bed and hoped for the best (which would be Malu still alive and well in the morning). The next morning they were gone. We figured she rolled in a bee farm or something goofy like that. Well tonight I left the dogs outside for maybe 2 hours and once again Malu has those bumps on her back. I started researching the internet for answers. "Boxer has raised bumps on her back". Plenty forums popped up. It is most likely hives or allergies. I am thinking maybe mosquitos because it seems to be darker at night when she gets these bumps. I don't know but I guess its not uncommon for boxer dogs to get these problems. Crazy dog.
Notice the bumps on her back? Tonights isn't as bad as last week.
Harder to notice in this picture. You can see the patch of 4 bumps down by her booty.

Here is the cabinets all painted and the top ones hung back up. Goodbye forever red... I won't miss you.
The living room/kitchen wall and modeling painted by Rillz. He did an awesome job and looks so great!
The cave painted except for the cubby holes.
Our first laid tiles!
Holy cow tile is a lot of work. I won't be quitted my day job for tiling any time soon.

So, Rillz and I both happen to have REALLY bad days. Rillz couldn't fix his sprinkler system at the rental house nor find any parts to fix it and it was SUPER hot outside and there was the renters dog jumping on his back/head every time he bent down to try and figure out the sprinkler head problem. My day was just terrible at work too, I don't even want to go into further detail but I felt so stressed at one point that I almost just started crying. Then we planned on leveling our kitchen floor tonight and calmed ourselves down enough to get started. We planned on a really long night to just get it done. I started trying to figure out where the level spots were and ran into problems. Our previous quicklevel spots are cracking. FRUSTRATING. We call Jeff and he advised us not to do anything else with the floor tonight. So now I am back into having a bad day. And to top it off they are now jackhammering Overland road (which is two houses down) from 9 p.m. until 5 A.M. It is now 10 p.m. and the construction crew is hard at work making a crap load of noise right before I settle down for bed. God is really punishing me or testing me today. I haven't figured out which one yet. Oh when is this day going to end...

Even the box was nicer then the guy. It told us to have a nice day!
CK BBQ food. It actually looks better than it was.
Home cooked dinner!!
Yummy! I love colorful food.
It has been 2 weeks now since we started our remodel. Today I got to paint! I started by priming everything. The trim, the fridge "cave", and the cabinet drawers. When that was complete I painted the cabinets the color I picked out for them. It is called Lyndhurst Castle sand. Kind of a greenish gray. It will be interesting to see what the color looks like when the tile gets installed.
Good bye cabinets. The red never looked as good as I had wanted it. So I am glad to see it go.
All primed and waiting to be painted.
This is the new paint color. The pictures don't show the true color.
